Actress Tanushree Dutta is yet again making the headlines and this time it’s for putting allegations against ace-choreographer Ganesh Acharya. In October, Tanushree had put allegations on veteran actor Nana Patekar for sexually harassing her on the sets of their 2008 film Horn Ok Pleassss.
Recently, Ganesh Acharya camne out in support of Nana Patekar and said that he was choreographing Tanushree's song for the 2008 release and a sweet person like Nana Patekar can never do this. In response to Acharya's claims, Tanushree said in an interview that "He's a bloody liar and a two-faced person. He's going to say all that. And 10 years ago, he was one of those people who were equally complacent in the harassment. He won't admit it."
"He's not the end goal of this discussion. He's the reason why this discussion started. I want the industry to ban these people from working just to set an example for others. You can't get away with this behaviour. My fight is not with Nana Patekar or Ganesh Acharya. I don't want them to work. I want them to suffer the consequences of their actions," she further added.
Ganesh Acharya got very furious at Tanushree after hearing foul allegations against himself and decided to send a 12-page letter to Tanushree by his lawyer Padma Shelatkar, denying all the allegations made by the actress.
“This wasn't a solo dance as alleged by Dutta. In fact, it was a well-planned group song with 100 odd performers/dancers in the background and her in the lead role. The rehearsals took place from March 17-20, 2008 at Shrique Hall under my supervision,” his statement mentioned.
He also accused Dutta of finical behaviour, Ganesh said, “Several assistant dancers were teaching her the steps during these rehearsals. My team and I had to undergo a lot of hardships due to her finical nature. At the time of rehearsals, she did not report any grievance about performing with actor Nana Patekar."
After filing a FIR against the four people she has accused of sexual misconduct, Tanushree Dutta also plans to approach the Bombay High Court for filing another complaint against the police personnel who refused to lodge her complaint in 2008. “This is criminal negligence on part of the Mumbai Police. I will seek action against them. I am also going to file a PIL seeking a body to look into all the #MeToo stories that the industry's women have shown the courage to speak on. Tanushree feels, she should help others get justice," Tanushree's lawyer Nitin Satpute, said in a recent interview.
